Red Deer RCMP believe two people stole a vehicle and then used the information in the vehicle to break into its owner’s house, and they are looking for suspects.
On Sept. 21, police received a report at 5:15 p.m. of a vehicle stolen from the Michener neighbourhood while the owner was at work.
According to police, the suspects drove the stolen vehicle to the victim’s home in Westlake and used the garage door opener to access the house.
Once inside the residence, the suspects stole computers and various other items.
The stolen vehicle was recovered later that day.
Police are working with witnesses to develop a composite sketch of the suspects. It is believed that a man and woman were involved in the incident.
Police recommend that people protect their personal information and home addresses from potential thieves by taking any personal documents with them when they exit their vehicles, including keeping insurance and registration papers in wallets or purses.
